Jags in Rio: On the ground and on the move

Arthur Takahashi and Brennan Meagher, the two Augusta University correspondents we sent to Rio to cover the Olympic journey of alumnus Pardon Ndhlovu, who will run in Sunday’s marathon for his native Zimbabwe, arrived in Rio on Monday.

Since then they’ve blogged about first impressions and Brazilian cuisine, taken video of the Olympic Village during a failed attempt to have dinner with Pardon and come in contact with quite a few of the 23,000 soldiers that are part of the security force.

Not bad for their first day on the ground.

Check out their blogs, photo galleries and dispatches from Rio on the Jagwire Olympics page, where you’ll also find a bunch of Olympic-related content provided by the talented members of the Augusta University community.

Have questions about cupping? Zika? The economic wisdom of hosting the Olympics? Our folks have answers to these questions and a whole lot more.
